Cain) is dmi.ledly a iwint of great com
mercial importance, and is dcMtined to be

Southern Illinois. One imint that is a ;;reut
drawback to the. city in its natural fea
ture, U ito bein so low in situation; hut
levees and general fillinga-up Imvo ahout
iloi);.awuy with this difficulty.
To refer to the firs history of the town
fur a moineut, we funl that the town wax
first laid out in 18IM. The town, however,
was not really started until 1M8, w hen the
Cairo City Canal Company made some
moves in that tu red ion. Work on the 11
liuois Central Hailr.ad was begun, and by
18-11 the town had begun to assume quite
In 184!, however, the town became al
most a nonentity, and in nine months the
population decreased from 2,000 to about
In 1840 the obstacles thnt were in the
way of the growth of the city were removed
and a new reign of prosperity began. Until
1858 everything seemed smooth, w hen again
the. city was thrown into rouftiniim, and for
two years went backward rather than tor-ward.
Tne war breaking out made Cairo a place
of Kpcriiil importance as a military point,
and the presence of the "blue coat wined
to udd to the prosperous c unlit. on of the
The Cn-toin lioim , which als contains
the lV'M-oflico, is a tine ntnicture of slime
ami is an hmmr to the city. The Court
house is a neat and commodious brick
building of three stories, and is a source of
pride to the citizens. As for churches, the
city is abundantly supplied. There are
eleven in the city, and the majority of theni
are in a flourishing condition both finan
cially and spiritually. There is ori'j female
seminary which has quite a reputation.
The city supports three daily papers, and
what speaks well for the giiod people of
Cairo is the fact that they all seem to devote
a great ilea', of attention to the various
leading topics of the day. Thus the city
is advancing intellectually, as well us finan
cially. The population of the city is about
11,000, and at present is on the increase.
As a river point, the city is of special im
portance. There are, no doubt, more land
ings made by various steamers at this point
than auy other in the West. With her seven
railroads and an uninterrupted communica
tion with the ocean, Cairo is destined to be
the great commercial center of the West,
The citizens are, as a rule, men of marked
intelligence, and are alive to nil that points
to the future well-being of the city.
As regards its gcmmls. they up' without a
doubt among the line-t in our land. The
schools are attaining a very liL-h grade of
excellence, and the teachers understand
fully tht ir lir.Mness. One feature is intro
duced into tlvm that is both unique and at.
the same time a sr.irce of great benefit to
the pupils. We refer to the studies of tele
graphy and phonography, which are both
It is a feature that is of great bcnellr, in
giving to each child an occupation when
they shall reach years of maturity. Child
ren 12 and 14 years of age are able to show
almost a complete mastery of these two sei
cnees, and one would be astonished at the
readiness with which they acquire a knowl
edge of these subjects. It is a feature that
recommends the public school system of
Cairo, and one that at no far distant day
other cities will he imitating.
Cairo has one leading hotel,
TIIK I'LANTKKs' IIOtSK,
with E. It. Egnew as proprietor, and
Messrs. Robertson and Holly ns clerks.
This hotel has a reputation far and wide,
as being one of the host managed housca
in tho west. Mr, Egnew lias fur several
years been engaged in his present business,
and he makes a complete success ns a land
lord. The hotis.", although not very large,
is a model of neatness and homelike com
fort, and one Mopping here is sure of re
ceiving tho best .of everything the city af
fords. Mr. Egnew Is one in u thousand
among landlords, and a gentleman of
greater suavity or courtesy cannot be found
anywhere. He sjeins to lose all sight of
self in his clforLsto make comfortable those
around him, ' His hotel is already a great
success, and as time pnvsi's by the future
will see it still mure prosperous, Robert

This city in its mercantile interests is
largely devoted to the commission business,
and this seems to be the great source of
revenue for a large majority of its citizens.
The leading firm of the city is that of
This firm control the larger part of the
shipping interests of the city. They have

a building of 150,000 bus. storage capacity,
own the Egyptian Flouring Mills, tho lar

have the most extensive commission house
in the city. The flouring mill contains six

J from 2,700 to 3,000 tons. Their warehouses
are directly adjacent to the river, and there
me improved facilities fur loading directly
i on to steamers. This firm also own the
Illinois Central Iron and Coal Mining Coin
i pany and Halliday Salt Company, located
! at St. Johrs. One can gain a slight idea of
the magnitude nf this branch of their busi
ness uben we state that their shipments for
yesterday from these mines were over 074
tons of coal. They are decidedly represen
tative and leading men.
HALLIDAY AN I) I'illLMI'S
are still another branch of this firm, who
own the wharfboats at the levee. They
have the finest facilities foi the loading and
unloading of boats of any similar company
in the West. They own three principal
w harfboats, which are enclosed under metal
roofs, lighted by gas, and connected with
each other and various parts of the city by
telegraph. No, 2 is without a doubt one
of the linest boats to be fouud nfioat. She
is a double dei ker, and teams drive both'
on to the upper and lower floors for receiv
ing or depositing goods. This company
also owns a half interest in the Delta

but makes a specialty of grain and flour.
He owns a half interest in the Delta ware

and does as heavy a business In the ship

man, and knows just how to make a success
out of his business.
